The Proper Grip
Before you can take a shot you must first grip the club properly. The grip can alter the direction in which the ball travels and the angle of the club face at impact. Whether you use interlocking, overlap or 10 finger grip (Baseball grip) each is fine, it is the placement of your hands on the grip that makes the difference. The following description of the grip is considered a neutral grip which will allow the face of the club to be square at impact.
Top hand or left hand for right-handed players is placed with the grip on the (1) middle crease of the index finger and on the bottom crease of the last 3 fingers, then (2) close hand over grip with the thumb at the 1 o’clock position. The line between the thumb and index finger should point between the chin and right shoulder.
*right hand for left handed players and thumb is
placed at 11 o’clock pointing at the left shoulder.
Bottom hand or right hand is placed on the grip against the top hand with the grip on the (3) bottom crease of the pinky finger to the top crease of the index finger. (4) Now close hand over the top hand so left hand thumb is placed in the life line of the right hand and the right hand thumb is pointing at 11 o’clock. The line between the index finger and thumb should point between the chin and right shoulder, same as the top hand.
*left hand for left handed players and thumb is
placed at 1 o’clock pointing to the left shoulder.
The (5) finished grip should look like the picture to the right. You can see the direction of the thumbs and the placement of the hands on the grip.
